Huckabee Says London Events Show Value of Surveillance

AUGUST 11, 2006 - Posted at 8:07 a.m. CDT

 

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Governor Huckabee says the recent arrests

in London should give some pause to critics of President Bush.

Huckabee said while on a trip to New Hampshire yesterday that the

arrests show the critical importance of surveillance and

intelligence gathering in the fight against terror.

British officials say they arrested 24 people after uncovering

evidence of a plan to blow up ten aircraft heading to the U-S,

using explosives smuggled in carryon luggage.

Huckabee said the news should make Bush critics rethink their

stance that it's unnecessary to engage in surveillance and to do a

thorough job of intelligence gathering. He said it's clear that

intelligence gathering is exactly what gave the authorities the

opportunity to apprehend these people.
